Pros

The customer service is by far the best thing about TUIO. They are so kind, helpful and responsive.
My experience has been nothing short of great. They are constantly making TUIO better and better each year, always adding more helpful tools.
There is a learning curve, however, with the help of our manager is very helpful. This has really been helpful with my monthly payments.

Pros

Over all it has been very positive. The company provides many training opportunities, from phone and website help, to online and in person training.
I like their wonderful customer service and that they they are adding new features and services.
The product works well - we have been using it for decades. As with most software, greater flexibility and power means more options, and a greater need for training.

Cons

Can't imagine going back to post-dated cheques and always losing track of payment deadlines.
Not all payment history is provided. Previous payment history is missing.
Also there were many instances where the invoices were delayed in being processed and showing up in our tuio inbox.

Cons

The only frustrating aspect of Powerschool seemed to be the timing of the updates.
The only con is it can be difficult to get information updated as if parents/students do not know their account info they must go through the site admin which can delay information updates.
Lastly, they have an Attendance feature that allows you to group separate classes into one session, but that feature is MISSING for grades.

TUIO

Great value, very user friendly

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall it has provided a fast, easy way to organize and charge for our enrolments in various programs.

Pros

As enrolment and payment processing software it's very user friendly and when needed, the customer service is fast and helpful. It is easy to manage and change invoices and refund full or partial invoices. The way registrations are set up is flexible with multiple options.

Cons

As an SIS it is not fully developed. There are issues with enrolments in different programs causing duplicate students. Each enrolment is linked only to the parent who pays the invoice.

Vendor response

Thank you for the helpful review! Be on the lookout for other SIS features in the near future.
